Caption: Egyptian grasshopper. High-speed photograph of an Egyptian grasshopper (order Orthoptera) taking off from a twig. Grasshoppers have enlarged hind legs which are modified for jumping. The grasshopper grows by metamorphosis from a wingless nymph by a series of progressive molts. Only adult grasshoppers can fly. They feed mainly on grass and are distributed worldwide wherever vegetation grows.
